Astoria Scandinavian Midsummer Festival, Oregon

Astoria Scandinavian Midsummer FestivalThe Astoria Scandinavian Midsummer Festival has been a tradition on the  North Coast of Oregon for over forty years.   The Festival takes place on June 20-22. The festival embodies the  rich cultural heritage that was transplanted to the Astoria, Oregon  region by emigrating Scandinavians. In the Pacific Northwest they found  the same bounteous seas and forests as in their native lands and the  demand for their skills at managing them. During the three days of the  festival over a dozen Scandinavian musical,  dance, and theater groups  are scheduled to entertain. Retail booths will offer handcrafts,  Scandinavian import items, and  traditional Scandinavian foods.
